I enjoy planning menus for the week, printing them, and hanging them up so family members can see (and I can remember) what is planned for dinner. I use the title Kap’n Mom’s Kitchen – Homade Specials because our family has standards and this is a joke. While traveling we NEVER eat at a place using incorrect spelling (such as Kaptain or homade), dialect which shortens words ( Kap’n), or a family member’s name (Mom, Uncle, etc. also includes Mr. and Mrs.) We once had a terrible meal at Mr. B’s homade cookin’ and learned our lesson. That being said, here is my week’s menu –
In explanation “traditional chicken” means boneless, skinless chicken breast cooked in the immersion circulator and “big chicken” means a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. (Our local grocery store advertises its rotisserie chicken as “Big Chicken! Big Flavor!”
As indicated, Monday was Chicken Monday. This satisfying dinner comes in at about 350 calories. That includes some butter in the rutabagas and on the broccoli and 1/4 cup of the packet chicken gravy.
